The government-facing arm of information technology consulting company CGI has debuted a program called Sunflower Work Management that has been made with the federal civilian sector in mind.

Sunflower Work Management is a human-focused, enterprise business management software intended to enable ease of access to projects and funds, with a basis in the cloud and featuring a mobile component, the Fairfax, Virginia-based subsidiary said Tuesday.

John Owens, senior vice president and enterprise solutions group leader at CGI Federal, enumerated the tool’s functionalities, namely, complex business process facilitation, asset status confirmation and asset deployment. Owens said the handling of assets Sunflower accommodates is a good fit for “mission-critical situations.”

The layout of Sunflower Work Management utilizes dashboards, metrics and reports to help users glean management and operational information about business processes. It makes the facilitation of individualized work procedures possible so that users can conduct asset maintenance, inspections and shipping and additionally, confirms that organizations are abiding by ISO 55000, the global standard in asset management.

CGI Federal’s newest program is meant to assist businesses in maximizing value from assets. It is compatible with and integration-ready for the company’s other Sunflower products as well as its Momentum line. The Sunflower arsenal is designed to help public and private organizations—including higher education entities, research hubs and federal agencies—resolve global asset management needs.

Last month marked CGI Federal’s successful upgrade of its ERP application, Momentum, for almost 20 federal government agencies so that their systems comply with guidelines set by the U.S. Treasury Government-Invoicing architecture.

In April, Stefan Becker, senior vice president and business unit leader at CGI Federal, engaged in an Executive Spotlight with ExecutiveBiz. He spoke about the direction and focuses of the company and how they communicate with federal agencies.

“From my vantage point, agencies are increasingly focused on improving business processes and enabling greater collaboration and data sharing, as well as increasing efficiency within the agency through advanced technology and automation,” Becker noted. The new Sunflower program seems to reflect as well as provide further tools to complete this mission.
